Because of the scarcity of resources for second chair leaders, particularly those in the church, this book will offer a practical way to improve the performance of any organization. Leading Congregational Change discussed the importance of a "vision community"--a diverse group of key members who discern and implement the vision for a congregation--to guide the transformation of a church. This work will extend the theme of an empowered leadership team as we explore how individual clergy and laity can lead effectively.
Roger Patterson is the associate pastor of West University Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, where he has served for eight years. He is a second chair leader who loves to invest in the development of other leaders for the expansion of God's Kingdom.

Urban Rogers5 Stars Out Of 5July 7, 2010Urban RogersThis book contained a vast amount of information that proved to be extremely beneficial to my ministry. Not everything in the book was applicable, but the content was very enlightening. A "must" for ministers in all positions.
Pastor Bill Carp5 Stars Out Of 5April 21, 2006Pastor Bill CarpMike and Roger have done an excellent job with this book. I have been a second chair leader know for several years constantly looking for more resources in this area. But to my dismay nothing was ever written on this subject. Then "Leading from the Second Chair" was written. It only took me three days to get through the book. There were many practical principles to apply and truths from God's word about leadership that have been discussed. It really doesn't matter if your leading in the church or the business world. These principles will work in both spheres. The book made such an impact on me that I attend one of Mike and Roger's seminars. This is cutting edge information that every second chair leader should read and apply to their everday life.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a church consultant, leadership coach, and a second chair leader in a local church. Even though I now serve in vocational ministry, my career began with an MBA and 15+ years of experience in business. I love my family and my church, and I'm excited about the doors that God continues to open in my life.
What was your motivation behind this project? Too many second chair leaders feel frustrated and lonely in their roles. We hope to at least begin a dialogue about what it means to be a leader and a follower at the same time, to have dreams but to choose contentment in the present. In doing so, we hope that second chair leaders will find greater joy and fulfillment as they serve in God's Kingdom.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? We desire for the church and church leaders to be strengthened and to minister at their maximum effectiveness. "Second chair leaders" have few resources that acknowledge the unique challenges of their role. We hope that readers will find this to be a practical and encouraging resource.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I'm thankful for my wife, my parents, and many unsung people who have deeply influenced my journey of faith. Leadership Network has been a tremendous resource for me as a Christian leader. I enjoy reading a variety of Christian authors, including C.S. Lewis, Andy Stanley, Reggie McNeal, and Bill Hybels. I've also learned much about leadership from secular authors such as Jim Collins and Robert Quinn.
